I have set of bibliometrics data (references). I want to extract the author names, title and the name of the conference/journal from it. Since the referencing style used by different papers vary, I am interested in knowing if there are any per-existing tools to do it?

I am happy to provide examples if needed :)

To learn from traditional software in that domain you could start at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software

  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm, I think what I am expecting is different. I want to know an API/tool that extracts information from the citation. $\endgroup$
